LP Lamp Install

Hello Everyone. In my continuing efforts to restore my trailer I've decided

to install an LP Lamp. So I recently accuired one, A Sun-Lite No.

S-300 made by Sunbeam. It is in excellent condition and gives the

clearances for the install. My quest here is to determine the best way to

install it. I would like to know for those that have a gas lamp is it

connected into the main LP line with its own cut off valve? or is it ran on

a tee connector from an existing appliance, this case being the fridge. If

you have pictures that would be great. Thanks for the Help.

Always best to have a shut off valve for every appliance. That way if there is any trouble with the lamp you can cut off the supply to work on it.

My original Veritas gas lamp has a T run in from the stove and that is how it was installed at the factory. Works like a charm, so well, in fact, a friend with a brand new SOB wants one in his trailer. I just bought a Humphries off of Ebay and plan on putting it in in the next few weeks.

I hooked mine to the fridge line also. No need for a separate valve, use the one for the fridge if you need it. Just use a flare "T" and run the tube up inside the wall next to the fridge. Duck soup!

When I got the 58 Flying Cloud, there was a valve, stem, and heat shield over the sink/dining table, but the lamp parts were long-gone. The copper line went through the over-sink cabinets, into the wardrobe to the left of the stove, down, then back behind the stove where it t'd into the stove supply line, after the shut-off valve. Getting to this valve requires a contortionist, but do-able.

I installed a Falks lamp at this site, but had to move the supply line down, because of the mounting configuration. The lamp itself has a shutoff valve at its base.
